My question is very basic, exactly what it says in the title. How do I overwrite a file? The system I am using is Windows XP. Now I'm sure u r wondering why I am asking this? I am installing a program & I need to overwrite one of the files with a "crack" file. I had tried copying crack file, deleting the file in question and then pasting the file i had just copied into original files folder. This did not work. Therefore, I guess the copy/and paste method is not the way to go. I had to uninstall the program and am now re-installing it all over again. So, I assume that overwrite means to replace in some manner. I'm just not sure what this manner is. Could somebody please fill me in on the correct procedure. Thank you and have a sunny day! :)
